If you have an employer-sponsored pension plan, you're among the lucky few. Traditional pensions--in which retirees were guaranteed an income for life--are a thing of the past. They've been replaced by 401(k) and IRA plans that shift the burden of building and managing a retirement nest egg to the employee. The scary part is that most of us are woefully unprepared to handle this responsibility.
That's where Your Nest Egg Game Plan comes in. Using simple language, the authors provide an easy-to-implement framework to design an investment program that will provide the benefits of a traditional pension plan--while offering the flexibility that retirees and pre-retirees demand. Rather than touting individual stock picks, painting doom or gloom scenarios, or focusing on "the number," the authors take a broad look at all aspects of investing and income generation. They expose many of the fallacies perpetuated by financial advisors, mutual fund companies, insurance companies, and the Wall Street media.
Your Nest Egg Game Plan replaces fear and uncertainty with intelligence and insight, and helps individuals tailor an investment and retirement strategy to fit their unique needs. In light of the global market meltdown of recent years, Your Nest Egg Game Plan is both timely and timeless.
